Asus PCs Have Good Reviews
Few processor core desktop computers manufactured by Asus have good ratings on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all personal computers (not just few processor core desktop computers) and found that Asus also has good ratings across its entire range.
Easy to Use
One person who purchased this PC reckoned that it was easy to use. Canadianreviewer.com wrote “Making a micro-PC that’s ideal for general computing and is a practical solution to many user’s desktop needs” in their review of the Asus VivoPC VM40B and scored it 70 out of 100.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on few processor core desktop computers that were launched more than a year ago.
+4 More reasons for
Quite Big Max Internal Memory Supported Processor
The max internal memory supported processors of comparable spec computers that were released around the same time as the VivoPC VM40B range from 4GB to 64GB, and the average max internal memory supported processor is 27GB. With a max internal memory supported processor of 32 gigabytes, the VivoPC VM40B has one of the bigger max internal memory supported processors amongst comparable spec desktop computers of this age.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on few processor core desktop computers that were launched more than a year ago.
At only 1.2 kilograms, the Asus VivoPC VM40B is fairly light compared to most of the other few processor core desktop computers that came out more than a year ago. The weights of few processor core desktop computers that were released one year ago range from 140g to 16kg.
3 Reasons Against
Very Slow Processor Clock Speed
At only 1.5 gigahertz, the VivoPC VM40B has a quite slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other few processor core desktop computers that have been available for a comparable time to the VivoPC VM40B. The average processor clock speed of desktop computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the VivoPC VM40B is 2.8GHz.
If you would prefer a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to consider the Acer Revo One RL85 (£205.00) (1.7GHz), or the MSI DC111 (1.8GHz) which is also higher rated.
Quite Small Processor Cache
The average processor cache of few processor core desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the VivoPC VM40B is 2.8MB. With a processor cache of only 2 megabytes, the VivoPC VM40B has one of the smaller processor caches amongst few processor core desktop computers of this age.
Only Supports Two Compatible Memory Cards
The Asus VivoPC VM40B has a greater number of compatible memory card than most few processor core desktop computers that have been around for a comparable time to it. This personal computer supports an SD compatible memory card, which is the most frequently supported compatible memory card supported by computers of this age and spec. The compatible memory card "MMC" is also supported by this computer.
5 Other reasons to consider the Asus VivoPC VM40B
Released Over a Year Ago
This desktop computer has been on the market for over a year.
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the Asus VivoPC VM40B has a pretty average total storage capacity compared to most of the other desktop computers that were released more than a year ago.
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the VivoPC VM40B has a fairly typical hard drive capacity compared to most of the other few processor core desktop computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the VivoPC VM40B.
+3 Other reasons
Average Internal Memory
The Asus VivoPC VM40B has a fairly standard internal memory (4 gigabytes) compared to most of the other desktop computers of this spec and age.
HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on personal computers of this age and type. A Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is the traditional storage method for computers. A HDD stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are cheap, but they are slower than Flash and SSD bases storage systems.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative HDD personal computers currently available including the Acer Revo One RL85 (£205.00), or the Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 (£373.78) which has better reviews.
If the storage speed of this desktop computer is not fast enough for you then you might want to consider the MSI DC111 (SSD), or the Asus Chromebox (SSD) which is also higher rated.
